    Great energy in the store, great co-workers, 25% discount that can be combined with coupons, fairly decent job as far as "RETAIL" goes.


    As with all retail environments: messy coworkers, lazy coworkers. That's about it. Everything else is great. I love my job @ JCP!

    Advice to Management

    Hire better talent. That's about it. I have no complaints. JCP has been go to me personally. I can't speak for others.

    Retail Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Gadsden, AL
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at J. C. Penney (Gadsden, AL).


    I went to the website applied online. The very next day I got called to come interview. I talked to the manager that was in charge of hiring, and she asked me very easy questions. She hired me on the spot and introduced me to a couple of other managers that happened to be outside the office. Overall, it was a very easy interview with simple questions. I started that next week.

    Interview Questions


    They only pay minimum wage if you don't have retail experience. Therefore, you cannot negotiate. I have heard of others negotiate if they have previous experience.

    Marvin Ellison's story is classic J.C. Penney

    Marvin Ellison didn't start out in a cushy executive training program after his parents paid to send him to an elite college. No, Ellison has one of those other storybook backgrounds, the kind that inspire us to plant the American flag in our front yards on federal holidays.
